W36CK was a low-power television station licensed to Bangor, Maine. It was a repeater that broadcast programming from the Trinity Broadcasting Network, via satellite. The station broadcast on UHF channel 36, with no digital signal. W36CK was one of two TBN affiliates in Bangor, the other being WCKD-LP.
On March 13, 2006, the station applied for a construction permit to begin converting operations to digital television. Upon completion, the station was to have broadcast at 15 kW on Channel 36.
TBN took W36CK silent March 31, 2010, due to declining support, which has been attributed to the digital transition. Its license was canceled on December 19, 2011, for remaining silent over a year.
